About Speaker Applications

The speaker application for TEDxDePaulUniversity 2019 is now closed. DePaul faculty, staff, students and alumni are encouraged to check back in the fall for news about the 2020 speaker application process and deadline.

Speakers for our next TEDxDePaulUniversity event will be announced in early 2019.

Some talks include performances or a performance element with a strong connection to the theme that may be considered as a talk; however, the deadline to apply for a speaker slot has passed.

We also have invited groups to perform on stage in between talks or during breaks. If you’d like to be considered, please email us at TEDx@depaul.edu.
